Unemployment continues to fall


over2million-alltimeNew figures published today show unemployment continues to fall as the economy strengthens.

Since Labour were in power in 2010 the number of people in work has increased by 2.05 million and unemployment has fallen by nearly 0.7 million. In Wycombe, unemployment has fallen by 1,148 people since April 2010.

Over the last year 80 per cent of the jobs created have been full-time, with only around one in 50 people working on zero-hour contracts. Unlike the last Labour government who did nothing, action has been taking to clamp down on abuses by banning exclusivity contracts.

Getting people into work is the best route out of poverty and the Conservatives are committed to achieving full employment, so everyone who wants to work can have the security of a regular pay-packet.
